DESCRIPTION

The Discovery is our lightest model of SideStix. Without any moving parts and requiring no maintenance, the Discovery can handle the toughest conditions that you throw at it including water, sand, and mud.
Discovery Adapter
The Discovery is best for people who only walk shorter distances (under 1km) and have a more relaxed walking style. These people typically won’t need the damping shock absorber of the Boundless, and will benefit more from the Discovery’s lighter weight.

Right from the start we designed SideStix to be sleek, stylish, and silent. With a selection of lower tube wraps, you can blend in or stand out. The clamp system allows you to set the height exactly where you want it and lets you to swap out tubes and tips as you need, all while keeping them silent.

Made with aircraft-grade aluminum and carbon fiber, the Discovery is very lightweight (approximately 730g each) and extremely strong. We’ve stress-tested them for millions of cycles and had them independently tested and approved by the University of Pittsburgh Human Engineering Research Laboratories (ISO 11334-1: 2007).
Carbon Fiber Lower Tube
Combining ergonomic angles with a completely custom-built approach means that every pair of SideStix fits perfectly. Once you submit your order, we analyze your measurements and then build each pair according to your dimensions and walking style. That means your pair of SideStix are just as unique as you.
Discovery Ergonomic Forearm Angles
A number of options allow you to build the pair of SideStix that is right for you. These options include different grip styles, lower tubes made from carbon fiber or aluminum and also three different types of cuffs; a front cuff, a side cuff, and a 3/4 cuff. The front cuff is a standard cuff opening that allows you to easily get in and out of them while still giving good side to side support. The side cuff gives you great support, allows you to easily get in and out of them, but has the added benefit that they will stay on your arm while you reach for something. The 3/4 cuff gives you the most freedom, but provides the least amount of side to side support.
Boundless Cuff Options
The Discovery are compatible with all our accessories, meaning you can feel confident walking on any terrain. Grip Caps can help on trails or icy conditions, Sand Shoes will take you to beaches or through mud, and Snowshoes will take through powder snow in the mountains.
Boundless Accessories
A limited lifetime warranty combined with superior build quality means that you will save money and reduce the chances of secondary over-use injuries, over a lifetime of owning your SideStix. No more buying replacement crutches once or twice a year! You can trust that SideStix will be there when you need them most.

    A great product that is massively making sport so much easier on one leg.

    I knew they'd be better, but I had no idea how MUCH better my sidestix were going to be! When I had to use my old steel crutches (stored in the car as emergency backup) the other day because I'd left my sidestix at home, thinking I was only going to use my wheelchair, it was like putting on lead boots. My sidestix are half the weight, twice as steady, and make me feel so much more comfortable and safe while walking. It's night and day compared to my old crutches. The cuffs fit more securely and higher on my forearm, and the ergonomic hand grips are a delight. Plus I can take them apart and stow them while I'm wheelchairing, and collapsed they fit in the overhead bin on airplanes. I love them so much I'm tempted to get a second pair, so I can have outdoor crutches and indoor ones. If you're considering sidestix, go for it! My only regret is how long I waited before I finally bought mine.

    I've used a variety of canes and then a couple of different forearm crutches over the last (counts on fingers) 13 years. Most have been serviceabl, but none can compare with my SideStix (singular). which I've used for just over a year now. I love the veritable weightlessness - it's so sleek and light that it feels like a natural extension of my own body. I don't walk with it -- it walks with me. The hand grip is by far the best I've ever used. It definitely lives up to the hype. I didn't get any new calluses when I started using it, because nothing rubbed wrong. And using it hasn't irritated any of my frequent tendonitis points (wrists, elbow, etc) because it puts my hand in a good neutral position for weight-bearing. It feels good and strong and comfortable -- so I feel good, and strong, and comfortable. I like the leather pad inside the cuff. My previous crutch (an Ergobaum) had a soft but pebbly textured liner that, over time against bare skin, collected skin/sunscreen/white stuff that was impossible to completely clean.The SideStix's leather wipes down easily and completely.
